New England  opened a 14-point lead in the first half and then broke it open in a driving rain with three third-quarter touchdowns and another to start the fourth. That made it the second-most lopsided game in AFC championship history.

On the field, Brady completed 23 of 35 passes for 226 yards and LeGarrette Blount ran 30 times for 148 yards.

QB Andrew Luck completed 12 of 33 passes for 126 yards with two interceptions for the Colts (13-6).
